Baby Room progress

Jack's mom has been sewing like mad! She has sent us several boxes of quilts and blankets that she has made from the fabric I picked out.
They are so cute!
And since we won't know the gender of the baby, she has made two sets- one for a boy, and one for a girl! Here are the two quilts, on the crib.

I have a lot to do to get the baby room ready, but I am holding off for a couple of months.
I have just 3 weeks to get ready for an art show in Georgia, and then 4 weeks after that to get ready for another art show in Georgia! When those are both done (mid-October), then I will devote all of my time to getting ready for this baby. I have a stack of books to read, diapers to buy, products to research, curtains to sew, lullabies to learn, safety products to install, and a house to baby-proof. Just thinking about it, I get so excited!
January just can't come soon enough...

Those quilts are really beautiful! I love how they match the bumpers. Getting ready for baby is so fun. Bob and I started buying things before we were pregnant. When we would go to get clothes for ourselves we would also buy clothes for the baby. We always bought girl clothes without even knowing that our first would be a girl :D

Can't wait to meet you in September! We are all very excited!!
